16 CFR Part 456 ; Agency Information Collection Activities: Review; Comment Request Ophthalmic Practice Rule (Eyeglass Rule): FTC Project No. R511996
I'd like to comment on Eyeglass Rule, 16 CFR Part 456, Project No. R511996. I've worn glasses for 6 years and my prescription has only changed once in that time. It doesn't make sense to have my prescription re-evaluated annually when it usually ends up being the exact same. As a recent graduate with a low income, it's frustrating to have to spend money on a new prescription when I barely have enough to purchase a new pair of frames because my last pair broke. I'm confident that I can self-determine when I should go get my eyes checked, just like I do for every other aspect of my health.
